Live From Atlanta, It’s Pelice 2012!
Story by Rich Donnell,
And I do mean “live.” That is, the upcoming Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PEL-ICE) will be video-broadcasting live at certain times during each day of the March 1-2 event— “coming at you” from the Grand Ballroom North of the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Yours truly and Panel World veteran scribe Dan Shell will be behind the microphone discussing developments at the conference and interviewing various industry personnel, including some of the speakers before and following their presentations. (No, we won’t be showing the actual presentations—you have to be present to see those.)
The video broadcasts will be launched four times on March 1 and twice on March 2. Each broadcast will run five to 10 minutes in length. Several exhibitor companies are buying a sponsorship for an individual broadcast (if you’re interested in a broadcast sponsorship, e-mail Susan Windham: email@example.com or call her at 334-834-1170 and she’ll give you the details).
If you’re interested in tuning in (for free) to the broadcasts, you’ll simply need to go to the conference web site, www.panel-expo.com and you’ll see the link enabling you to watch. And of course you can watch from anywhere in the world if you have on-line capabilities.
Broadcast times (Eastern Standard Time, USA) are:
March 1 (Thursday): 8 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 3:10 p.m.
March 2 (Friday): 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m.
Hey, it’s not like we don’t have enough to do, so why not pile on some more.
We would prefer of course that you’re there with us in Atlanta, but if you can’t make it, at least you’ll be able to get a taste of PELICE as it happens.
